With some time after work this week I hope to be able to finish the backboard and start forming up and cutting the timber for the yard and track. Then I'll fit the foam scenery, shape that and cut an appropriately-shaped fascia to fit. The pelmet will come after lighting. Lighting itself is still a little way off, but I'm looking at LED strips having seen other modellers' success with them. It's frustrating being at least two weeks away from the soonest track-laying, but that's just the way it has to be.
To close things off, here's another motivator:
7302 hauls an up goods (probably a trip working) through Newtown. (Source: Weston Langford's website - a great place to spend a few hours, regardless of which system you model)
